Ligon tells the story of her mother, Evelyn T. Butts, a fearless and spirited community activist and voting rights champion. It is the story of a fight for basic American rights from the perspective of one who lived through oppression and fought for change. Mrs. Butts challenged Virginia's poll tax. The case made it to the US Supreme Court and in March 1966, Justices voted 6-3 to end the poll tax…in all elections.
